NATIONAL Crisis Response Canines provides canine teams that are trained to gently, safely break through the barriers of isolation caused by crisis, allowing individuals to re-connect to their families, friends, school mates, church fellowship and other cherished social supports.

In the presence of the canine, the individual experiencing crisis instinctively begins to feel safer and protected, quieting the need for fight-flight-freeze.
